It’s finally official! After teasing their fans throughout the weak, Team Liquid has announced its complete Valorant roster.
Team Liquid’s Valorant squad will be headlined by retired Counter-Strike legend and one-tap machine, Adil “ScreaM” Benrlitom, together with the formerly unsigned British stack fish123: Adam “Ec1s” Eccles, Dom “Soulcas” Sulcas, James “Kryptix” Affleck, Travis “L1NK” Mendoza, and coach Connor “Sliggy” Blomfield.
Each member of Team Liquid’s new Valorant roster come from CS:GO backgrounds. ScreaM was part of VeryGames, Titan, Kinguin, and G2 Esports — some of the biggest CS:GO teams in recent years.
Meanwhile, fish123’s members were part of lesser-known CS:GO stacks that participated in development league tournaments.
Before being signed by Team Liquid, fish123 was already competing in Valorant as early as its beta phase and was considered the best team in Europe at the time.
However, a couple of weeks after the game was launched, fish123 lost one of its key players in Charlie “ardiis” Svarenieks who moved to G2 Esports — a team that has dominated the European Valorant scene, racking up four straight Ignition Series tournament wins.
In Team Liquid’s blog post, the organization explained each player’s role and agent specialization.
Ec1s will be the team captain who has a vast agent pool in Breach, Omen, and Sage. He will also be Team Liquid’s designated Operator.
Soulcas will continue as Team Liquid’s Raze and Sova specialist, while his longtime teammate Kryptix will play the anchor position with Cypher.
L1NK will give his team versatility with his agent pool of Sage, Sova, and Viper.
ScreaM was the latest player to join the squad, so his role is — and always will be — to go for headshots, regardless which agent he’s asked to play. Based on his performances in previous tournaments, he shines when playing Reyna or Breach.
Sliggy will also continue to support the team from the sidelines. With over five years of coaching experience under his belt, he looks to help the team make proper adjustments to improve after every tournament.
Team Liquid is set to debut during the Allied Esports Odyssey tournament on August 11, facing off against the likes of G2 Esports and Ninjas in Pyjamas.
